BRIDGEWATER, Va. -- After four seasons as head coach of the Bridgewater men's basketball program, Shawn Postiglione is leaving to take over the head position at Moravian College in Pennsylvania.
Postiglione had a record of 26-26 over the past two seasons, which included leading the Eagles to their first winning campaign in four years.
"Post is a great basketball mind who was able to recruit athletic players that could defend and compete within a very tough Old Dominion Athletic Conference," said Director of Athletics Curt Kendall. "We wish him well as he moves on with his coaching career."
A young Eagles squad was over .500 in 2017-18, finishing 14-12 overall. Freshman Dimetri Chambers was an All-ODAC selection while earning both state and conference Rookie of the Year accolades.
Bridgewater went 12-14 this past season, but the year included a win over #21 Lynchburg and also saw BC take two other nationally-ranked opponents into overtime.
Over his four seasons, Postiglione's teams posted a 5-3 record at the Don Glick Classic hosted by Bridgewater College. The Eagles have won five straight at the Glick Classic.
The Eagles also managed a winning record against nearby conference rival Eastern Mennonite, going 5-3 against the Royals with Postiglione as head coach.
Before taking over at Bridgewater, Postiglione was an assistant at ODAC rival Randolph-Macon College. The Yellow Jackets achieved a #1 national ranking during the season, won the ODAC championship and reached the NCAA Elite Eight.
The search for the new Bridgewater men's basketball coach begins immediately.
